Campus Space: Office of Fellowships

This magazine article is part of Spring 2015 / Issue 81

Stager 218

Tucked away on the second floor of Franklin & Marshall’s Stager Hall, the Office of Fellowships is a valuable resource for students and alumni who apply for prestigious national and international fellowships. This is where Monica Cable, director of fellowships and adjunct assistant professor of anthropology, supports and guides students through the application process for a wide range of programs—from short-term summer courses to multi-year graduate fellowships such as the Fulbright, Marshall and Rhodes.

With its colorful assortment of international artifacts, artwork and literature, the office provides students a grand introduction to global cultures. International travel and scholarship have been passions of Cable’s since her undergraduate days, when she spent her junior year in China. The professor’s goal is to inspire students to pursue similar experiences, emphasizing their own scholarly passions along the way.
